    I have worked with metal since High School back in the 60's but only took up welding about 5 years ago. Went to our local tech school to learn stick, mig and tig. As of now, I do mostly stick and some mig.

    I work for a local municipality wearing many hats, sometimes a couple at one time. As far as welding I weld to repair equipment in the field or in the shop, on police vehicles or in the station & office, design and fabricate many new items for use in the shop and around the municipality.

    Zack; you got yourself in the right line of work! My high school had a 2 year voc. program that was 4 hrs. a day junior & senior year. In my opinion this country needs more of them. I also attended Ivy Tech for a few semesters.

    I currently work for an oilfield service company repairing heavy and light equipment; mild, cast, alu., you name it. Past jobs have included repairing cracked rear end housings for CAT, Crane repairs, shot blasts' repair, mass producing tractor trailer suspension systems, rail car production, bifurcation tubes for hydro plants, pneumatic painting systems, fish bypass systems 4 ****s, coal dump boxes along w various other mining equipment. You can work almost anywhere in the world if you are a competent hand w good work ethics. Learn everything you can; show others if it helps them out and don't forget to buy boot strings in bulk!
